HRFLA Staff Report
The dirt track is listed as Fast and the turf course is listed as Firm for Thursday’s nine-race card at Gulfstream Park.
First post is 12:00 p.m.
As of 10:30 a.m., skies were clear at Gulfstream in Hallandale Beach, Fla. The Weather Channel forecast is for the chance of rain to range between 5 percent and 25 percent during racing hours.
The first, third, fifth, seventh and ninth races are on the turf.
Today is the first day for turf racing at Gulfstream since Monday Sept. 7. From last Thursday through Sunday, rain led to the move of all scheduled-for-turf races to the dirt.
Thursday’s carryover on the Rainbow 6 is $375,346.
The 20 cents per combination-only bet will be on races four to nine, with the sequence scheduled to begin at 1:30 p.m.
Gulfstream is guaranteeing that the Rainbow 6 pool will be at least $600,000 if there is just one ticket with all six winning horses. Such a ticket would “take down” the jackpot and win the full carryover and 80 percent of the day’s new Rainbow 6 bet (20 percent carryover).
Gulfstream has gone eight straight race days without a single-ticket winner. Thus, the carryover keeps growing.
On days with multiple winning Rainbow 6 tickets, Gulfstream takes out 20 percent of the day’s Rainbow 6 bet and then divides 56 percent among tickets with six winners and adds 24 percent to the carryover.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Gulfstream continues to race without spectators.
Betting on Gulfstream races may be done on almost all major Advance Deposit Wagering (ADW) platforms and at many sports books, other race tracks and OTB offices that are open during the pandemic.
